Compare with Google Docs

3 advantages


Compatibility with Microsoft Office

While Google Docs is great for collaborating on simple documents, it doesn't offer one important aspect demanded by business users - compatibility with Microsoft Office.

Have you ever tried importing a real-world Microsoft Office document into Google Docs? You would have inevitably found your document "mangled" in Google Docs. Export from Google Docs to a Microsoft Office format is equally lossy.

Live Documents is the only online Office suite that offers "non-lossy roundtripping" with Microsoft Office. Unlike Google Docs, Live Documents ensures that the data and formatting of your original documents are not lost in translation.

Richer user experience and feature set

Have you ever been frustrated by the lack of basic productivity features in Google Docs? Live Documents provides a feature set that matches almost everything that Microsoft Office provides and several unique capabilities that even Microsoft Office doesn't offer.

Enterprise orientation

Google Docs is a consumer application - it is fine for managing and collaborating on simple and casual documents. On the other hand, Live Documents is focused on enterprises - ensuring imperatives around productivity, security, compliance and collaboration. Unlike Google Docs which is only available as a hosted service, Live Documents gives enterprises the option of purchasing a server that be run on-premise behind the firewall.
